Moving to the country is a dream to some people but a nightmare to others – if you enjoy the hustle and bustle of busy city life, the ease of public transport and the fact that you have everything you could possibly want on your doorstep, then countryside life probably isn’t for you.

Even if you are convinced that it is, living in the countryside for the first time can bring a few surprises – for example, a lot of homes in the countryside are not connected to mains sewer services, so would need someone like this septic tank emptying Bromsgrove based company to come regularly to empty your septic tank.

But despite these little quirks, it is certain that life in the countryside has many health benefits when compared with city life…

The Air Quality is Much Better – It is well known that in cities, particularly big cities like London and Birmingham, the air quality can be incredibly bad for you. Problems like asthma can be made much worse by this, so for an asthmatic, life in the countryside is much healthier.


More of your own Space- The city is busy, crowded and expensive – this means that you can get a lot more for your money if you are buying a property that is more rural – London in particular has much higher property prices. This means your quality of life could be much better in a home with a garden and more space, than a tiny city bedsit.

Exercise Opportunities – There is much more joy in exercise in the countryside – running, walking and cycling in the countryside all come with views over the tranquil woodlands and fields, as well as lungful’s of fresh air – compared to a gym it is the much more pleasant place to be!
